Land is among the major resource needed for development. The on going land degradation and increasing number of people living in poverty are among the symptoms of the current pressure on land resources. In Temeke Municipality, the land is characterised by the following major features:
(i) High Land
This consists of small hilly ridges of Chamazi. The soil is steadily being degraded due to continuous cultivation. This is the area from which woodland and seasonal streams originate and farming activities and informal residential development are also taking place.
(ii) Relative upper land
In this area residents have occupied a large proportion. Due to continuing urbanisation process, other land is being turned into physical development activities such as residential, industrial, commercial and infrastructure development; as a result it has become the most preferred area for construction. For example Miburani,Mbagala and Toangoma area.
The land is found along flood plains of Yombo River, Keko valley Mzinga valley, low lying lands of Unubini. The land is suitable for urban farming activities including gardening. However, the areas are characterised by unplanned settlements which are prone to flash flooding.
